Poem of the day

What is green?


Green is the grass

And the leaves of trees

Green is the smell

Of a country breeze


Green is a coolness

You get in the shade

Of the tall old woods

Where moss is made


Green is a flutter

That comes in Spring

When frost melts out

Of everything.

Green is a grasshopper

Green is jade

Green is hiding

 In the shade –

Green is an olive

And a pickle.

The sound of green

Is a water-trickle.

Green is the world

After the rain

Bathed and beautiful



Green is the meadow,

Green is the fuzz

That covers up where winter was.

Green is ivy and

Honeysuckle vine.

Green is yours

Green is mine.


-  Mary O’Neill
